Ruger recently introduced three new models to the Ruger American Rimfire line, each featuring a Go Wild Camo I-M Brush stock and bronze Cerakote finish. The new models come in calibers .22 LR, .22 WMR and .17 HMR.
Similar to the bigger Ruger American centerfire rifle, the American Rimfire now delivers not only the same lines, but configuration. With three versatile chamberings, the rifle works well for pursuits ranging from casual plinking to small game and varmint hunting at modest distances.
The Wild Camo edition, paired with a bronze Cerakote finish, stands out. However, the rifle delivers like other Rugers with a cold hammer-forged barrel and a threaded muzzle and factory-installed muzzle brake. Patented Power Bedding positively locates the receiver and free floats the barrel, according to Ruger.
These new offerings also feature the Ruger Modular Stock System. It ships with a high comb, standard length of pull module, ideal for use with optics, according to Ruger. The company also offers compact length of pull stock modules at shopruger.com. An easy-to-use extended magazine release provides a no-fuss removal of the provided flush-fit BX-style rotary magazine.
These new rifles also maintain the hallmark features of the Ruger American Rimfire rifle line: a factory-installed, one-piece aluminum scope rail; 60-degree bolt throw for ample scope clearance; an easy-to-actuate tang safety; and the Ruger Marksman Adjustable trigger.
